    I think he's looking at the settings on the lens.

    Yes indeed, they have that "Leica glow".

    I remember this video from awhile back, I think he was adjusting his aperture, his meter had to be indicating under exposure, even when he opens it up all the way.

    I don't know which model of the Leica he has so I don't know if it has a meter. But if he got bad meter reading then he is really stupid as not to find out why before going on shooting. But really I am surprised as I think most Leica users are very technically competent.

    Thank you, everyone responsible for brining this lens cap video to light. I was having such a down day, and this really cheered me up. Comedy gold.
    I confess I'm a gear nut within my price range. ;)

    Most Leica "shooters" (owners) know a lot about the theory of shooting, and can show you all sorts of charts that tell you how good their camera is, but it's doubtful if many actually are proficient at actually using the camera and framing a shot... Too busy polishing and dusting them on their glass shelves

    Derek Woods is the only photographer I know of who is competent with his Leica, and boy is he!!

    Bravissimo. I wonder how much longer he kept at it and whether he switched to camera no 2.

    I wonder if he laughed at himself when he realized what happened, or if he stormed off mad, or what.. Lol

    I guess I am in the minority of Leica "shooters," StoneNYC: my interest is shooting my M6s, not worshiping them. By my own admission, I know diddley-squat about the history of Leica, the iterations of the various lenses, Leica nomenclature, MTF tests (what the hell are those?!?!); my interest is using the things, not admiring them. For the record, one M6 (always loaded with Tri-X/HP5+) resides in the console of my Civic, always at the ready; the other, likewise at the ready, will be in a corner of my Domke, or hanging off my shoulder. Re: technical knowledge: One of the reasons joining APUG appealed to me was the breadth of knowledge therein: an effort to compensate for the manifold weaknesses in things technical.

    Your generalization about LeicaFolks, Stone, unfortunately contains more than a measure of truth. A member of Leica Forum and LaVida Leica, I admit to finding far too much of the "discussions" meaningless...and often embarrassing to read. Indeed, I have found myself wondering on more than a few occasions if some of these folks get out on a regular basis to use their precious cameras! Oh, and yes, I laughed my ass off when I watched the video (much as I got a charge out of seeing the picture of Eric Clapton trying to shoot with the lens cap on...).
    An assortment of F-series Nikons (F to F6, excluding the F4) with quite a few Nikkors, a pair of M6s with some Leitz glass, a pair of 500c/ms with a wide range of Zeiss optics and, just to help keep Duracell solvent, a D800.

    Favourite films: (1). KE ("Kodachrome Era"): 35mm: PKM25 and PKR64, HP5/Tri-X; 120: PKR64, PanF, FP4. (2). PKE ("Post-Kodachrome Era"): (a) 35mm: E100G, HP5 Plus/Tri-X and Delta 3200; (b) 120: E100G, PanF Plus, FP4 Plus, TMax 100.
